Lighthouse ©

(ancient and modern)

Frank E Gibbard
London, England
2007

The lighthouse stands out there in the briny foam
And has shone on and on for these hundred years.
Gone now light keepers from their erstwhile home
Where its mighty beacon assuaged the sailors’ fears.
Lifeless unmanned and cheaper in our present day
Still a-shining and life saving great beam undimmed;
Electricity the power generating permanent display
No candle lit, nor lamp to fill, no wick to be trimmed.
